Re: OOC: Everything Else
I need to confirm that SILI wants to go through the western double doors, while DAI and ZEIG go through the northern one.

By default, Garus will guard the two squishes that don't have a giant pet dog, so he'll go with them.

JAGA is also on auto-pilot, and he's more inclined to go with the other three than with the one guy and his dog.

So I'll delay on SILI's action for now until you confirm which door you'd like to take.



Another large note on opening doors in this game:
The standard system for doors taking an entire Move action to open is fucking not fun. We will be doing what some other d20 systems do. It still requires a Move action to open a latched or handled door, yes, but any movement you have remaining from your movement up to the door remains to be used afterward.

So, you could move 15' to a door, open it, then spend your next 15' moving back away from it, walking through it, taking a step through, taking a super quick look around, then leaving again, and so on.

This extends to some other Move action equivalents as well. For instance, picking something up off of the ground.

Re: OOC: Everything Else
Make sure you read the above.


The next post I make will contain initiative.


edit-
15:17, Today: teslas, on behalf of Garus, rolled 6 using 1d20+4. Gurlop, init.
15:17, Today: teslas, on behalf of ZEIG, rolled 6 using 1d20-1. init.
15:17, Today: teslas, on behalf of JAGA, rolled 4 using 1d20+2. init.
15:16, Today: teslas, on behalf of Garus, rolled 9 using 1d20. init.
15:16, Today: teslas, on behalf of DAI, rolled 22 using 1d20+2. init.
15:07, Today: teslas rolled 16 using 1d20+6. woops.
15:06, Today: teslas rolled 20 using 1d20+5. THE Skeleton, Init.

There they are. SILI, post what you'd like to do, as above, and then I'll roll your and MILO's initiative. We'll move along a little later tonight (for me, at least). If SILI does not respond, I'll roll a die. 50% chance he sticks with the group in the hallway. 50% chance he goes west to the door.



Everyone who installs Whatsapp on their phone so that I can text you (and you me) gains 100 bonus EXP.

I have not forgotten about the movies and shakers recently getting bonus EXP, and will award it at the resolution of this situation.

Re: OOC: Everything Else
Had whatsapp about a week now, just hadn't found a need to use it yet. My number is still the same, and I have one of yours but forgot if it changed in all this time.

Edited for spelling I should stop trying to post from my phone without my glasses.

My American number is still registered to my WhatsApp account, so you can use that to find me.

Do I get 200 xp for already having/communicating with you through it?

Re: OOC: Everything Else
No, but I guess you can be grandfathered in for the 100 EXP. In fact, you already were if you check the status page and that the edit date is before your post.

I'll follow the others. I should read better, didn't see that Dai was leaving through the north.

Re: OOC: Everything Else
Two things:

1: Keep in mind not everyone is at full health (especially MILO, who is missing 10 hit points).
2: Some people or pets are fatigued.
3: JAGA has 10 nonlethal damage, and is about 10 minutes away from 8 of it naturally going away.

4: The DM sucks because he forgot the +1 bonus to initiative everyone gets. I'll re-roll all of those (and then roll for SILI/MILO) presently. edit- And actually, ZEIG and Gurlop are fatigued, so their original roll with original modifiers is the valid one.

Re: OOC: Everything Else
DAI told me he delayed. Garus/MILO/JAGA are going to continue to delay.

Nothing happens as it loops back around to ZEIG.

Re: OOC: Everything Else
The light under the door doesn't change at all?

So... it's probably waiting outside the broken window inspecting it or just looking around for some signs of movement. Chances are someone broke some of the glass on the floor... only a matter of time before he leaves or whatever.

Ghost Sound only requires line of sight? Could I cast it through a glass window then?

Re: OOC: Everything Else
Ghost Sound requires line of effect (and therefore sight is implied). It also has a verbal component, meaning that if someone were listening intently they'd likely hear you casting it. It's a base DC 0 Listen check to hear someone cast a spell.

Now, whether or not whoever heard you speaking the verbal component cares about the weird speaking they just heard when five lions are roaring behind them, that's another story.


This thing, however, appears to be a fairly capable combatant... or at least it used to be... before the, you know, fire skull stuff. It might recognize odd shit going down after it hears mumbo-jumbo might imply magic.


If you have Silent Spell, and care to spend some MP, then that solves the noise problem entirely. I don't remember if you do or not. You'd still need line of effect, however.

I thought this, but didn't post it.

Zeig will stay still and quiet until either the situation changes or 3-5 minutes have passed.

Re: OOC: Everything Else
I hope we get to play: "Who is better at waiting forever? The humanoid party, or an insane undead abomination?"

The light does not move in any perceptible way for anyone.

In the event SILI says he delays, which seems kinda likely (and I'd probably do the same as a player in this situation), it will bop back around to DAI. DAI, since you log in more often than SILI most of the time, if you'd like to go ahead and take your next action do so. If SILI post first, well then I guess he wins.

Re: OOC: Everything Else
Now waiting on ZEIG.

When MILO sees everyone but Garus go through the door, he'll follow.

As mentioned in the IC, Garus will come last. It would be wise to leave a spot open for him. Also, he is noisy as hell in that platemail. While DAI is making the sounds of several going the other way, the Listen DC to also hear one going the way of the party would be achievable. It would not be trivial, I'm not even going to say likely, mind you, as there's a door and some distances involved, but the DC could be passed and then the skeleton would act on the information it hears accordingly.

Re: OOC: Everything Else
I am still delaying until something goes down, as stated.

I can't wait to move into the basement for my games' sakes. A little piece of me just died saying that.

Re: OOC: Everything Else
Couldn't ZEIG cup his hands to make a sort of Bullseye Lantern effect? Likely better for keeping our position hidden as far as the Skelly's site is concerned.

Re: OOC: Everything Else
Yes, he could do that. It wouldn't be as great, but it'd work in a pinch.

edit-
And hopefully I can update this finally tomorrow.
